Read full description of the books:



Spindrift is the story of a sailing odyssey, but also of an inward journey into deep truths about who we are and how we belong in the universal scheme. A meditation on sailing and life, it is a hugely enjoyable and thought-provoking book for landlubbers, sailors, philosophers and naturalists alike. It is a story of pilgrimage, of reflection through solitude and through connection with nature. Mostly sailing alone, Peter Reason invites us to share in the minute-by-minute challenges of seamanship and navigation, on his enthralling journey in his 31ft yacht from Plymouth across the Celtic Sea and back. Exploring far more than the seaways, the author successfully manages to tell the story of a journey with another dimension - that of investigating and reflecting on our human place in the ecology of the planet. He reaches towards his stated aim of re-opening the 'great conversation' with the Earth, in contrast to our modern ways of living, which leave us speaking only to ourselves. Above all, this book shows us that Nature is not just a place to visit, but our home. As we finish the book, we may feel we, not it, are the ones being returned, to a rather dusty shelf. Along the way we have been given glimpses of 'the gorgeous arc of the universe' and shown how we ourselves are part of this immense, continuing process of evolution. We may be back at our mooring, but we find ourselves listening to the weather report with a new sense of engagement.
